Two men were arrested for hunting birds in a cemetery in Bahrain after a video of the episode went viral on social media.

The footage showed the two men running between gravestones at Al Muharraq, before heading to their parked vehicle. The clip also showed the suspects throwing heavy bags containing the dead birds into the rear of their white Nissan pickup truck, looking around, and then driving away through the gates of the cemetery.

They were seemingly unaware they were being filmed by passersby. The video was uploaded on social media and widely shared, capturing the attention of the authorities.

After seeing the video, officials at the Ministry of Interior instructed Al Muharraq Police to track down the suspects.

They were arrested and referred to Public Prosecution for hunting and trafficking wild birds without a licence and for causing harm to wildlife.

According to decree No 2 of 1995 on the protection of wildlife in Bahrain, hunting is prohibited without special permission.
